After being nominated eight times for a Golden Globe, “House of Cards” actor Kevin Spacey took home the award for Best Actor in a Televised Drama Series Sunday night at the 72nd Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, California. With his drink still in hand, Spacey walked up to the stage to accept his award from Katherine Heigl and David Duchovny.
“This is just the beginning of my revenge,” he said, a reference to his “HoC” character Francis Underwood. But viewers only heard him talk as Frank for a moment, since Spacey -- the actor -- began to say thank you.
“I want to thanks Netflix for their incredible support of this series,” he said. “I have an extraordinary time coming to work every day.”
Spacey, 55, thanked his “incredible cast,” and spent special shout outs to costars Kate Mara, who plays eager journalist Zoe Barnes on the show, and Robin Wright, who plays his wife Claire Underwood.
The shock of the award started to weigh on him. “This is the eighth time I’ve been nominated,” he said. “I cannot believe I f*cking won.”

As he continued to say thank you, he finished with: "I just want to be better, I just want to be better, but this is very encouraging, thank you very much."
